not consider such persons lit to live in the

Tho llov. I. C. Sm.'itt, pa-tor of tin
College Street Church, stated that bis
position also went far beyond h"
piovlslous contained In the agreed, cut
and that lie always refused to ri -many
anyone except the intioieiu
Ipaity to a divorce o! tallied on statu
tory grounds. The effective thing
j about the itgieement, nccoidlng lo D'
I Smart, Is the provision prohibiting re-

that be had quite a number of appli

lofuso to re-marrv them.
Tile lte. Kinest C. tluthrie said
that tho puipose of the agreement
was to stiffen up the method ol ie
miirrylng nnd to establish the fact
that Burlington was not a center
whom one mil tasily gel married If
one Is divorced. Thete have been dif
ficulties in the imst, he said, which
have all hi en leading up to th" agree
ment on the part of tho pallors. Per
sons am coining all the time, said Mr
Outhrle. to be re-murrled. nnd It has
been illtlh tilt to tell whether they are
seeking to avoid publicity by lielng

Heretofore, the pastors have had
nothing but the marriage license Is
sued at tlie city clerk's ollli e to guide
them. Now the parties wishing to
re-marry must produce an olllcial
document showing the decree of the
courts, and oven when this Is pio
duceii, sold .Mr. niithrlc, Hie imstors
may refuse to pcrfqrni the crremony.
Mr. Outhrle said that olio result of
tho ugl cement would be to cm tall
long stories on the part of persons
wishing to re-marry, as tho absence
of documentary evidence would at
once preclude nnv marriage ceremony.
